Carmen de los Martires, Granada

4.6
#2 of 8 in Parks in Granada
Not precisely in the style of the Moorish gardens of Granada, Carmen de los Martires nevertheless offers gardens with many years of history. Perched on a hill top, the park also features excellent views of the nearby Sierra Nevada mountain range. Only peacock’s calls break the silence. Note that you may find the gate from the main road padlocked and have to circle around; follow the signs to the Falla Auditorium for entry. Consider bringing a picnic.

  • It is nice and if you know your history better. I've only been once of the 20 or more times that I've gone to Granada. Weddings are held in the Palace but I have not entered. The walk through the garden a view I liked, as well as the history that takes the place.

  • It is a wonderful place to stroll, get lost in time and visit each of the places, fountains, pond and others. Children spend it great watching fish, ducks and peacocks (that I only had a chance to see them in China). It is a pity that not known

  • At the foot of the Hill of the Alhambra, Andalusia is rare in the UK and France style mixed with beautiful gardens. It is repair where there was a church built in memory of the Christians who were martyred in the Islamic era, and has been published. I went because it was free admission from a hotel near is the location "as time permits".

  • EXTREMELY beautiful place, even though I was not able to complete the whole thing. BEWARE, their winter hours start as soon as the weather is somewhat cold, not per calendar. They do not check if the location is empty before locking up and will lock you inside even if you're inside past "closing hours", words of experience 😂 [if that were to happen dial 092 and the local police will let you out... or jump the fence].
  • Such a peaceful existence away from the (beautiful) but very touristy Alhambra. Particularly enchanting in the mornings - make sure to explore all the grounds.
  • I don't understand why this is not more often mentioned in guide books. The gardens are beautiful; with glorious peacocks walking around. There are also some dramatic views of the valley... And it's free too so grab a book and take some peace and quiet here for a little while
  • Small, peaceful, pleasant garden with a good view, and peacocks walking around. Next to the Al Hambra and the much grander Generalife gardens. (Carmen means walled garden.)
  • A piece of tranquility away from the hussle of tourist at Alhambra. With lovely gardens, amazing views & all free! :D
